Oscaro to Track Millions of Shipped Parcels Using Leti's Low-Power Sub-GHz SigFox Transceiver

Leti and Oscaro, a leading European e-business company that specializes in the sale of new and genuine automotive parts, announced that they will use Leti’s new Foxy chipset to track millions of parcels shipped to their customers.

Developed by Leti, the award-winning Foxy is a single-chip, sub-GHz transceiver designed to connect Things to the Sigfox network, anywhere in the world. It enables both marginal cost, event-based, massive IoT applications and long-lasting IoT scenarios. Thanks to the optimization found on Foxy, battery lifetimes up to 10 years are possible.

Foxy is the first wireless transceiver dedicated to Ultra-narrow-band (UNB). It is a low power, low cost 65nm CMOS transceiver that allows GFSK and DBPSK modulations as well as data rates from 100bps to 20kbps. Foxy covers the complete Sigfox specifications including ETSI, FCC, ARIB and AUS/NZ bands and its TCXO-less protocol.

Going beyond Sigfox specifications, Foxy can push the UNB (Ultra-narrow-band) paradigm to its limits. Indeed, at ultimate narrow bandwidths, this technology is historically limited by Carrier Frequency Offsets (CFO) and drift, classically mitigated using a precise but costly TCXO.

Thanks to Foxy’s unique capabilities, unprecedented bandwidths of 100 Hz can be achieved even in the downlink, without a TCXO.

Specifically designed for the Internet of Things, Foxy enables both marginal cost, event-based, massive IoT applications and complex IoT scenarios which require aggressive node lifetimes. To know more, click here.
